To connect more than one computer to this 2wire you will need to buy an access point (or a router, either one will do). Since the 2-wire is a modem and a router, it can support more than one computer. However, the 2-wire only has one Ethernet slot to support one computer. This is why we need an access point or a router as this will give you more Ethernet slots allowing you to connect more computers to the same Internet connection.

Http://192.168.1.254/ has been put into my home page browser but nothing happens


IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.254 is the default gateway of an AT&T modem router (RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY) (2WIRE). for this ip address should be able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem and if not your computer is connected to a different network.

1) try connecting the computer to the 2wire RG using a ETHERNET cable (if your connected via wireless)
2) make sure that the DSL light is solid and not blinking.
3) if your computer already connected by a ETHERNET cable, try accessing the same ip address if your able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem it means that your computer will be able to connect to the internet.
4) try this also:
this for internet explorer:
click tools - connections - LAN settings
( if there's a tick mark on PROXY SERVER remove it )
if you do have tick mark on PROXY SERVER then your computer have a virus, because virus can put a tick on PROXY SERVER without you noticing it.
after removing the tick you will be able to connect to the internet again.

2 wire 2700HG-B Gateway router


Open a browser while you are hardwired (ethernet cable from modem to computer) and enter this address: http://gateway.2wire.net/xslt

It'll take you to admin pages to configure how you want. Be careful though - 2wire can be uber-confusing. Download various instructions of things you want to do BEFORE you start making connection changes.

Home Network sharing issues using 2wire wireless modem


Did you manually assign the IP address to your shared devices? If so, the Linksys and the 2wire have different IP schemes.

2wire Gateway IP address:
192.168.1.254
255.255.255.0

Do an ipconfig /all on your computer and compare it to the ip scheme on your devices.

run the telephone line from your modem into the wall jack. From the modem connect a network cable (cat5) into the back ( via the uplink port) of your linksys router . Your router can now route the IP from the modem.

Wireless connection to the 2 Wire modem


Hi

Most of the 2wire gateways have the WEP key or the encryption code on the bottom of it. It would a 10 digit Number of a Five Character one within square brackets.
Other wise you can go to the gateway page by accessing http://192.168.1.1 on another system which is already going online using the gateway or wired to it and in the gateway page under wireless you would find the WEP key incase the default key on the bottom of the 2wire does not work.

Do reply incase this has resolved your issue or you need more help.

Thank you

2 wire 2700 hg-b


The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.

Hi,

XP is an very good OS which will connect with 2wire without any problem.

If your computer is not able to detect modem, pls follow these steps.

* Check for damage of ethernet cable
* Try to reset the modem by using a paper clip punching into the reset button
* Even if your modem is not detected, force the IP and Default gateway

Take care

Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem


I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.
